Moscow, May 24 (IANS/RIA Novosti) President Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama will meet at the G8 summit in June and during the US president’s visit to Russia in September, a Kremlin aide said Friday.

“The first meeting will be in Lough Erne (Northern Ireland) on the sidelines of the G8 Summit and then (during) Obama’s visit [to Russia] in September, early September,” Putin aide Yury Ushakov said.

Obama’s visit will take place before the G20 summit that will be held either in Moscow or St. Petersburg, he added.

Putin and Obama will discuss missile defence among other issues in June, but any agreements on the issue are unlikely, Ushakov said.
